Patricia Urquiola



On Friday, 15 February at 6:30 PM, designer and architect Patricia Urquiola will be at Fabrica for a conference open to the public entitled “Pro-getto” (“Pro-ject”).

As she herself affirms, “As a designer I relate to companies and clients through a slow and multi-tiered empathic exchange made up of continuous discovery and experimentation. There is a connection between new technologies and historical archives: the idea of a temporal relationship marked by the rhythm of the design process. Thus memory becomes a dynamic flow that unites past, present and future and interacts with projects of various sizes”./intercepts different project scales”.

During the conference Urquiola will highlight several projects that talk about this process and the range of her experience as a designer of products and interiors as well as an architect.
